If there was ever a bike with more-than-adequate cooling this is it. In fact, it has the same size radiator as a GV1200 V-4 hot rod I owned before. I can't get the Wee above three bars no matter where or how I ride. With a previous air/oil cooled BMW R1150GS I would sometimes have to kill the engine when sitting in traffic when the gauge crept up to the top.
Slap on any guards or shields you want; as long as the radiator sees light you will not have a problem.
